Foundation Company Speaks Out on Earthquake Preparedness to General Public

LOS ANGELES, CA: Julian Construction, Inc., ( a foundation construction and foundation repair company in Southern California, has been working to educate the public on earthquake preparedness. The company has been working in the field of public safety and repair for over 20 years.

Shawn Kyles, chief building safety inspector at Julian Construction, stated: “Thirty years ago California adopted a law to encourage earthquake retrofitting of old buildings. However, thousands of buildings have still not been upgraded. Has your home been retrofitted for an earthquake? Seismic activity occurs on a daily basis in California. Within the past 8 months, there have been four moderate to large quakes ranging in magnitude from 4.4 to 6.8., two of which occurred in Southern California. Earthquake retrofitting increases a structure’s ability to withstand seismic activity, including ground motion and ground failure.”

Julian De La Torre, founder and owner of Julian Construction, stated: “The reason we are working on this campaign is to bring about more home safety. We want everyone to be secure and safe in their homes and know that their home’s structure will remain stable. The way we do this is by helping people find the home’s foundation problems and find out what needs to be done to repair them. We’ve been working on this and will continue to do so to raise public safety.”
